If you start the movie player with "totem --debug --gst-debug-level=3" from the terminal, does it give any error message?
Often the system is just not fast enough to play the stream a repeated "gst_event_new_qos" event in the output will indicate that.

Hm... it could be a problem with gstreamer... try to re-install all gstreamer packages (use purge in concole or totally remove in Synaptic and then install them again). I've solved the same problem in my Ubuntu 9.04. Cheers!

Can you help with this problem?
